Business Continuity

Does your organization have a Business Continuity Plan (BCP)?
Does it cover all of your current processes and activities?
Are you aware of current government BCP regulations?
Is your staff aware of escalation procedures in the event of a major outage, or worse?

Today's business continuity planning process needs to look beyond the data center and into security and protection, the business functions, and areas of automation. Customers, members and business partners expect 24x7 availability and government regulations have begun to require it. Today's climate is such that continuous service is the norm and anything less is unacceptable. With improvements in productivity and enabling tools that increase information flow comes the probability that interruptions will have a stronger impact. As you're coming to terms with the new realities of risk management, overwhelming technology and a more restrictive regulatory environment, Cyber Communication is there to help guide your way.

Disaster Recovery Planning

Cyber Communication has the skills, experience and knowledge to quickly and effectively enable your enterprise to recover IT services quickly and efficiently. Jack has over 30 years experience in information technology and solutions that take advantage of current technology. Staff at Cyber Communication implements actionable and tight plans that describe all phases of the recovery process from the declaration requirements to restoration phase. Some key questions to ask yourself when assessing your ability to recover are:

  1. What does your Disaster Recovery Plan look like?
  2. Has new technology changed your vulnerabilities?
  3. Can you survive a catastrophe and for how long?
  4. Will you be one of the 2/5ths that won’t survive?

The safety of lives and critical business functions are imperative but today’s Disaster Recovery (DR) efforts start in the Data Center. Protection for critical applications and safeguards to enable a quick restoration is the first step in a comprehensive DR plan. With improvements in technology comes an increase in information flow and the probability that interruptions will have a stronger impact. Customers, regulators and stakeholders expect 24x7 availability and protection. As you’re coming to terms with the new realities of risk management risk management, overwhelming technology and a more restrictive regulatory environment, Cyber Communication is there to help guide your way. Let us design a cost effective set of safeguards, documenting clear procedures and training your team to respond to changing priorities when a disaster occurs.

Emergency Response

Jack has over 15 years experience in first responder and emergency services as both a Ski Patroller and a member of the Sacramento CERT (Community Emergency Response Team). The staff at Cyber Communication implement actionable and tight plans that describe all phases of the evacuation and search/recovery process. Some key questions to ask yourself when assessing your ability to respond are:

  1. What does your Emergency Response Plan look like?
  2. Have teams been setup and trained?
  3. Have staff been trained on their responsibilities?
  4. How do you communicate to stakeholders and the media?
  5. Can you survive a catastrophe and for how long?

Protection for critical applications and safeguards to enable a quick restoration, but if you don’t have the people to staff and operate the processes, a comprehensive DR plan will fail. With improvements in technology comes an increase in information flow and the probability that interruptions will have a stronger impact. Customers, regulators and stakeholders expect 24x7 availability and status. As you’re coming to terms with the new realities of risk management, overwhelming technology and a more restrictive regulatory environment, Cyber Communication is there to help guide your way to protect your people. Let us design a cost effective set of safeguards, documenting clear procedures and training your team to respond to changing priorities when a disaster occurs.

Recovery Center Design

Due to the push for greater capacity, increased efficiency and higher levels of utilization, data centers have become more complex to design and bring online. Today’s data center designers are often required to possess knowledge in mechanical, electrical and telecommunications systems, as well as being familiar with the other needs of a data center, such as reliability, security and building requirements.

Cyber Communication has designed complex solutions with multiple vendors for over 13 years. Companies such as Discount Auto Parts and CalPERS have relied on Cyber Communication to provide alternatives for recovery of critical data center services. If you need to make an informed decision quickly, Cyber Communication is there to oversee the development of both practical and cost effective alternatives and once defined, can help you implement your solution with your equipment in a vendor agnostic implementation plan.
